On June 15, 1910, the SS Terra Nova left Cardiff captained by Robert Falcon Scott. He and his crew, called the British Antarctic Expedition, arrived on the South Pole in January, 1912. This was 34 days after a Norwegian team led by Roald Amundsen achieved the same feat. The Polar party perished while trying to return. This tribute portraying an explorer covered with snow and ice is The Antarctic 100 Memorial. The sculpture was created by Jonathan Williams and erected along Cardiff Bay in 2013.
